Hello all. I know some of the basics, but I am by no means a guru like alot of the people here, and I'm learning by fire! lol Here's a question that will problably be a breeze to you guys. I have a spec they want a query for, but I'm not sure where to start. I found a command called SET DATEFORMAT, but not really sure how to use it, or if it's even waht I need. Anyway here's what I was given to work from. I'd appreciate ay help you can give:

This interface service describes how to populate the EFFDT field in the Project_7 table for a GL record.

Input Parameter: G01.Acc_Eff_DT

Reference table: G01

1. If the code is being run for the first time return ‘2006-12-21’.
2. Else if the current day of the week is Thursday return the date in the format of ‘YYYY-MM-DD’.
3. Else return the date of the next Thursday in the format of ‘YYYY-MM-DD’.

Got Books online?

Also you talk about insert/update, and then discuss "return"

What excatly do you have to do...

I suspect you want to do

SELECT REPLACE(CONVERT(char(10),GetDate(),102),'.','-')

Just replace GetDate with your column

But this really is a presentation issue...I don't need to worry about formatting dates in sql server
